Five Mile Brewing Company

I grew up next to "Five Mile Woods" and had my first beer there while camping and have very fond memories of drinking beers there on subsequent camping nights.

I've got Copperpot's. Yep, as in Chester Copperpot. Paying a little homage to the greatest 80's kids movie Of all time, The Goonies. Doubles as the brewery and the 10 person bar with 2 tap towers I built.

DiscoHair Brewery

My brother and I used to live together and he had this border collie named Disco that shed like crazy. Everything we ate and drank had a Disco hair in it

So with no exception, we found a Disco hair or two in each of our batches!!!

Nothing too bad ever came out of it so we decided to call our little brewery DiscoHair Brewery.

Storm Mountain Brewing Co.

A geographic reference to the place we used to party at in High School.
Please! This is supposed to be a happy occasion. Let's not bicker and argue over who killed who.

Mine's an idea behind the brewery - good quality beer and wine for as cheap as possible. For that reason I came up with the idea of a man born into nobility, then losing all of his money, living homeless, but still believing he's a rich man and having the same taste as one. I call it "Homeless Nobleman's."

"Tim's Closet Brewery" just stuck over the years. Its name is derived from the location in the house where my beer ferments. ;-)

Over the years the "in the closet" jokes have dwindled as I have made an effort to "brand" my "company" with a nice logo, clever slogans, and the acronym TCB substituted for the full name. Oh yeah, I make good beer too.

If I ever went big with my brewing, I would always make sure to slip "TCB" somewhere into the fine print just so that I would remember where I came from and to see how many friends would catch the joke.
The hardest part of all-grain brewing is arguing about it on the interwebs.

well my name doesnt really have that cool of a story behind it other than, its always me, my brother and my father brewing together, so as usual stories,talking, and beer are involved. so with that combo their is always a lot of laughing going on. still working on a label but thinking old school looking three stoogies photo, black and white with our three heads kinda skewed.. well thats my story. oh yea the whole reason for writing this.. "Three Laughing Heads Brewery" and the brew pub would be named after that also..

That's funny about the Stooges, I used Larry on my Ginger Ale

Old Porcupine Ginger Ale

It's a Blenheim type spicy golden ginger ale.

Inferno Brewing

Partially because my house burnt partially down a couple years back.

Partially because after my buddy got toasted at my house he said the next day he felt he like went to hell and back.
